We saw a board on the high street saying it was open so we followed the signs to the back of the church . It was just closing but we were welcomed in and told we could walk round . The hall was very impressive as was the council chamber . Good to also see the cells and the robes .

So much history in such a small building spanning seven centuries. It's free entry with a suggested donation of £1. Well worth the money. The guide was terrific and great with the young teenager letting them lock the jail from the outside with a key the size of a housebrick. The bullring and the bulldogs was grim, the stocks, the queen's signature and mayoral accessories worth a small fortune. Excellent visit. Well worth a stop over

The Guildhall was closed as we walked through from a car park to the high street but being used to Eastern Guildhalls it does not seem terribly impressive. Its site seems a little cramped by the church and we may have passed it by without a second look had itnot been for the plaque and the roof. I hope this review is doing the building an injustice and that we were just unlucky.

If you want to know about Totnes and the history of the area then the Guild Hall is the place to go.
Take time to consider how horrid the lives of the poor was and how lucky we are to-day. An eye opener

Take time out to have a look around this old building, which is still used as operational Town Council Chamber, but also has history of being a Court House, and Jail.

Small - a quick visit - but packed full of history. Well worth including as part of the Totnes experience.

I have been to Totnes many times and have never been disappointed to walk around and just admire the town itself

Difficult to find - just one sign from the main road. Not open even mid morning - no opening hour details or explanation and no external information about the place so very disappointing.

Popped in here whilst in Totnes recently. Free to enter (donations asked for...) Plenty of history of the town, especially with regard to the shipping off of convicts to Australia! Worth a look if you are into history.
